Skipping Accutane

Skipping an entire month will mean you will need to be on your course longer than your initial 6 month estimate. Accutane courses need to be consistent to work, so missing a whole month is going to require some recalculation from your doctor and a longer time on the medication from you. Please discuss this with your prescribing physician!
